why i love this recipe

With the weather getting chillier and the holiday season rolling around, this skillet chocolate chip cookie is the perfect match. I love this recipe because it is the perfect chocolate chip cookie. It’s chewy, crispy, and gooey all in one. Top this gorgeous skillet with some vanilla ice cream and a spoon, and you have the most show-stopping version of a classic holiday dessert.

Tips and Suggestions
  • Leave the butter out at room temperature for at least 1-2 hours to soften it.
  • If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, this dough can be rolled into balls and baked as regular cookies! The bake time should be adjusted accordingly.
  • I’ve noticed that fancier chocolate gets more melty in the cookie, whereas my less expensive chocolate stays a solid. If you’re looking to make melty, cafe style cookies, I would get the fancier chocolate.
  • By letting the dough chill overnight, the cookie gets a flavor boost. But if you’re not patient enough (like me), you can bake it immediately.
Let's wrap this up

Weather this is made for a sweet-toothed party of 1, shared with loved ones, or doubled/tripled for a huge cast iron, this is a classic show-stopping dessert. I can’t wait for y’all to try it! Don’t forget to add a huge scoop of ice cream on top for ultimate deliciousness!
